Air Quality, Fifth Edition free pdf The fifth edition of a bestseller, Air Quality provides students with a comprehensive overview of air quality, the science that continues to provide a better understanding of atmospheric chemistry and its effects on public health and the environment, and the regulatory and technological management practices employed in achieving air quality goals. Maintaining the practical approach that has made previous editions so popular, the chapters have been reorganized, new material has been added, less relevant material deleted, and new images added, particularly those from Earth satellites. See What's New in the Fifth Edition: * New graphics, images, and an appended list of unit conversions * New problems and questions * Revisions and updates on the regulatory aspects related to air quality, emissions of pollutants, and particularly in the area of greenhouse gas emissions * Updated information on topics that affect air quality such as global warming, climate change, international issues associated with air quality and its regulation, atmospheric deposition, atmospheric chemistry, and health and environmental effects of atmospheric pollution Written in Thad Godish's accessible style, the book clearly elucidates the challenges we face in our fifth decade of significant regulatory efforts to protect and enhance the quality of the nation's air. It also highlights the growing global awareness of air quality issues, climate change, and public health concerns in the developing world. The breadth of coverage, review questions at the end of each chapter, extensive glossary, and list of readings put the tools for understanding in your students' hands.
